New content added to e-Endoscopy

Posted on: November 5th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH) has been working with the Joint Advisory Group on Gastrointestinal Endoscopy at the Royal College of Physicians to add new content to the Endoscopy e-learning programme.

The e-Endoscopy programme provides an interactive learning resource for health professionals involved in the delivery of endoscopy services. The courses cover a range of subject areas that are linked to knowledge competencies required by endoscopists, endoscopy trainers and endoscopy nurses and have been carefully aligned with existing recommendations for endoscopy training in the UK.

The new modules cover five sessions which form an essential part of the JETS workforce programme:

JETS workforce:

  • Patient Pre-assessment for GI Endoscopy
  • Infection Control
  • Role of Assistant and Diathermy
  • Improving Quality and Safety in Endoscopy
  • Decontamination Foundation

Over the coming months further sessions will be launched to support teaching in the following areas:

  • Capsule Endoscopy
  • Sub-specialties such as EUS
  • Improving Safety and Reducing Error in Endoscopy (ISREE)

NHS Project and Change Academy e-learning programme now live

Posted on: November 5th, 2019 by Alex Drinkall No Comments

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has developed an e-learning programme for NHS staff about project and change management activities.

This suite of specially designed and selected modules aims to provide all NHS staff with a clear and consistent understanding of the fundamentals of project and change management activities to enable them to have a greater impact on delivering successful change.

These modules are just one method of building project and change capability within the NHS workforce and are available for anyone working in health and care. All modules may be of interest and benefit to those either at the beginning of their careers, or those who are currently in a project related role but do not hold official qualifications in this subject matter (non-project professionals).

All modules are aligned to professional body standards including the Association for Project Management (APM) and the Change Management Institute (CMI), Best Management Practice guides and government standards set by HM Treasury and the Infrastructure and Projects Authority.

This suite of core skills e-learning modules forms part of a wider NHS Project Delivery Profession offering. For more information on the profession, join the community and head to the Capability Development Group.

The e-learning programme includes the following modules:

  • Getting Started: Projects and Change
  • Key Ingredients for Project Success
  • Project Leadership: The Role of the Senior Responsible Owner
  • Introduction to Benefits Management
  • Introduction to Change Management

Each module should take between 30-40 minutes to complete and there is a short self-assessment at the end of each module.

e-ELCA Update

Posted on: December 14th, 2017 by Rich Kitchen No Comments

As the new clinical lead for the e-learning programme End of Life Care for All (e-ELCA) I am excited about being involved in the programme, helping to shape its future and tell even more people about this fantastic resource.

The e-learning programme aims to enhance the training and education of the health and social care workforce so that well-informed high-quality care can be delivered by confident and competent staff and volunteers to support people wherever they happen to be.

HospiceUK conference

We had the exciting opportunity of presenting at the HospiceUK conference in Liverpool last month, as well as having a stand for the three-day duration of the conference. The presentation contained a session on how to navigate e-ELCA, as well as a discussion around educational strategies that could maximise its effectiveness (including blended learning).

We met a number of people at our stand as well as directly after the presentation. Many thanks for all of those who came to speak to us. I hope we were able to answer any queries. If you would like to ask anything please contact me at the addresses below.

Recent developments and future plans

e-ELCA comprises over 160 learning sessions. A key element of their quality is regular review. There is an ongoing programme of updating sessions to ensure they are all up-to-date. If you would have an interest in helping with this process then please get in contact with me.

Recent sessions have been updated in the form of 2.13 (Assessing Urgent Situations with Limited Information), 5.6 (Case study in Motor Neurone Disease (MND)) and 5.23 (Framework for End of Life Care in Advanced Kidney Disease. We are also in the process of updating the whole of modules 1 (advance care planning) and 6 (social care).

The new non-invasive ventilation in MND session is now complete and is soon to be uploaded to module 10 of the programme (specialist content). Please keep an eye out for this. Other sessions in development are culturally sensitive palliative and end of life care for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people, and the Amber Care Bundle.

Alongside this new material, we are determined to utilise our current resources to their maximum effect. With this we are developing a communications strategy to keep you as aware as possible of programme developments. We will be utilising Twitter for this as well as regular updates in the APM bulletin and APM trainee newsletter. Please follow @cmf_elca and @HEE_TEL for regular updates.
